Fire safety is vital within blocks of flats. On a regular basis or when something changes within a block of flats which affects the fire integrity of the building, a fire risk assessment must be carried out.
A fire risk assessment will cover a range of items, which may include:
- Ensuring fire alarms and emergency lighting is installed, serviced and tested at appropriate intervals
- Fire doors are installed and serviced
- Fire safety signage is installed
- Evacuation procedure is clearly understood
The risk assessment will also provide information of how to control or resolve fire safety matters.
